Oita Trinita – Yokohama F Marinos:
Oita got 6 points so far which is very impressive, and both their wins came away vs Kashima and Iwata. They lost 0-1 at home vs Matusmoto in R2 and playing away with less pressure might fit them more.
Marinos have been one of the most impressive teams so far and they’ve played some really attractive football. I expect them to put Oita under a lot of pressure here too although it’s a very different opponent from what they’ve met so far. They get back Miyoshi for this match which is a boost, so I expect lots of chances for them.
Although we shouldn’t underestimate Oita’s good start to the league I don’t think they will be able to keep up with Marinos in this match and expect an away-win.

Prediction: 1-2 or 1-3
I doubt Marinos will lose here I want to back them for the DNB @1,71 (30 units). As always with Marinos I also expect goals so Over 2,75 @ 1,89 (20 units) can be nice too.
